Looks like update 1.9 is really serious ;)

    Hunters range is still big. Even though is too big lol. Be careful what you wish.
    Also in my opinion scout should go further and voila...

    Who was sitting around complaining about Hunter range?

    Assault improvements always welcome.

    Guys what does Assult Damage Variation mean %20

    20% less dmg from walkers?

    doesn't it mean that the dmg was not the same for all targets in the spread, and that this variation is now 20% less, so more dmg on more targets? Like if you have 5 targets in your range you deal from 60% to 100% of the dmg to every one of them, this would now be 80% to 100% on top of the 5% dmg increase.
    At least thats how i read it

    Makes sense, the reading of it sounds like a nerf, but the explanation from the announcement read like assaults were under powered and they were giving them a boost, thats why I was confused, plus no coffee yet., Thanks @lmfgunnut

    Wow, what a great news for my assault!
    The assault is most used survivor when I do farming missions and outpost raids.
    Thanks NG, and I'm extremely happy that this game is going into right direction.

    @shabba you are on the right track, but I read it as a percentage reduction in the variance. This could come from top, bottom or both, but would be 20% of the spread, not 20% of highest possible damage.

    If the original were in fact 60%max damage to 100% max damage, the new values would be 68%-100% in your model.

    That is at least my reading of it. I've played games where you could upgrade weapons to reduce variance before. this results in higher damage per unit of time, but doesn't necessarily increase individual attacks.

    shall prevent the devs now they are fucking with their pockets full of gun sales guys spent for up they change the class bonus with coincidentally a scout weapon and sale ... a 20% bonus to Scout and a reduction for the hunter ...

    WoW, I just noticed that I just throw random commas out all over the place. My English teacher Mrs Mummert would be so pissed.

    Hmph. Hunters -1 range? Why the hell? Who idiot came up with that? Why fix something that isn't broken?

    @Amiga

    We may see more outposts with 3 bruisers guarding outposts after this 1.9 update. It looks like more assaults in high demand too.
  • AmigaAmiga Member Posts: 3,770
    Now will be easy to do daily quest kill 5 walkers in one shoot with hunter. Good change ;)

    While the reduction of hunter range sucks from a player perspective, I do understand where NG is coming from. It's obvious from the number of people that use 3 hunters on missions/challenges that hunters are far better than any other class. If their goal is to create more balanced classes (which it is), then it seems like this does the trick.

    Great looking improvements. Upgrading scouts worthwhile now??? I also like the downgrade of the hunter. That class was to powerful

    I'm a three level 18 hunter guy @JayZ so this is a big deal to me. @jester I'm glad I bought both wide bore bundles last week.

    The shooter's gold range is suddenly the most overpowered trait

    Nothing can make scouts and bruisers anything but the lowest two classes of survivors to me @Conan1976.

    All good changes though i think my gold range shooter has more range than a hunter now.

    @Poppy As of the last update where they increased shooter range by half a tile, gold range was half a tile greater than hunter already. Translation is that you could shoot farther than a hunter on a diagonal.
